Welcome to Hazel Class!
Croeso i dosbarth collen!
We have had a busy Science Week looking at bugs and drugs.
During this half of the Autumn Term, our topic is It’s a Wonderful World.
This topic has a geography focus and teaches the children about the geographical and historical significance of recognised Wonders of the World.
The children will learn about the locations of the Ancient and Modern Wonders of World including the countries in which they are located and about their geographical, historical and cultural differences.
They will learn how to use maps, plans, data and information to find out about a range of places and will develop a tourism package presenting their very own Welsh 7 Wonders.
In Numeracy, they will revise the four rules of number; using and applying number skills in everyday situations; fractions and decimals and problem solving.
To help your child, it would be useful to practise multiplication and division facts for 2 to 12+ multiplication tables so the children know these off by heart; also the doubles and halves of 2 and 3 digit numbers and decimal numbers.
As a reminder, we would expect your child to read at least 4/5 times per week. Your child will either have a reading scheme book and/or school library book to read from or their own choice from home or a public library. Please encourage your child to remember to bring their reading record to school every day.
FYI, P.E. is scheduled for Thursday afternoon.
Many thanks for your support!
Maths homework will be handed out on a Friday and due in on Monday.
Spellings will be handed out on Monday and will be tested on the following Monday.
Welcome to Hazel Class!
We are a mixed Year 5/6 class boasting 22 children in total; there are fourteen Year 6 children and eight Year 5 children.
This term we have been learning about World War II and why the Battle of Britain was such a significant turning point in British History. We are learning about the timeline of events and researching the lives of ordinary people who faced the Blitz and the challenge of dealing with rationing and evacuation.
We look forward to presenting our learning at our Class Assembly on Thursday 22nd June.
The Quad Final!
Our athletes performed well at the Quad Athletics Final held at Cardiff Metropolitan University.
QUAD ATHLETICS AT JENNER PARK
Congratulations to our athletics representatives from Year 5 and Year 6 competing in the recent Quad Athletics Meeting at Jenner Park Stadium. What a day! A host of big wins resulted in Llancarfan securing an impressive second place out of a total of 18 schools participating. Q
Each child had to participate in the following four events:-
Standing long jump
Vortex throw (javelin)
In no particular order, the stars of track and field were:-
Alicia, Megan, Molly, Freya, Henry, Jack, Morgan, Reuben, Max, and Dominik from Year 6 together with Alice, Charlotte, Erin, Alex, Caelen and Gethin from Year 5.
Well done to everybody who took part and grateful thanks to those parents who ferried the athletes to and from the venue!
Team A are through to the FINAL which will take place in July!
Did you know that recycled tins are used to make cars, coaches and even planes? Did you know that Nutella jars are used to resurface roads? Year 6 found out these fascinating facts when they attended a very informative Crucial Crew Workshop today at Barry RFC.
The children were introduced to a range of organisations at the Workshop, from The Dogs Trust to Network Rail who engaged the children in entertaining but ultimately useful and informative sessions teaching them about the potential risks in real life situations and how to deal with them.
Year 6 learned how to stay safe when out and about and what to do if they were to find themselves in a threatening situation. Effective self-defence techniques were discussed and practised by several volunteers – just take a look at the photos! In addition to the dangers associated with electricity and railway tracks, they learnt about the three Ps (Waste Awareness) and the four Cs (Food Standards Agency) - Do ask any Year 6 about these! The Fire Brigade were also present and delivered an engaging session on the dangers in the home. Did you know that kettles and toasters should always be turned off at the wall socket after use?
Thanks Crucial Crew for such an engaging and informative session!
